Complete and turn in assignments We have adopted the PBIS program at Heather Hills Elementary School this year. It is a school-wide program that fosters positive behaviors at our school.  The 3 R ’ s (Respectful, Responsible, and Ready to Learn) outline the positive behaviors that foster a positive and safe learning environment. “ As Mustangs we show pride by being Respectful, Responsible, and Ready to Learn! ” Rewards/Consequences We are following Heather Hills PBIS Program. Students receive Mustang Money as a reward for displaying the 3 R ’ s. Students save their  “ money ”  to cash it in for a reward once a month. The initiative is school wide and students can receive Mustang Money from any school staff member. All students are held accountable for these standards throughout the school building. If students do not meet these expectations in other teachers ’  classes, the cafeteria, recess, in the hallways, etc. they will receive the outlined consequences in our homeroom classes.
